February and March Classes Available at Best Paw Forward!

Hello fellow dog parents!

Just a reminder that our March classes are now open! If we have recently seen you for a private lesson you can now go register for your Level 1 class on our website. Yes, we now have online registration! Visit our new website:, choose the Training Services button, pick the class option that best suits your schedule, choose the Book Now button and follow the prompts - it's that easy!

Puppy Socialization (4 weeks, suitable for puppies up to 4 months old at class start)

Most people think that the phrase “socialize your puppy” means meeting lots of other dogs and people. This is important, but we often miss everything else in our environment: Sounds, surfaces, objects, cats and animals, dogs of all breeds and personalities, umbrellas, people in hats, people with beards and glasses, children, bicycles, strollers, shopping carts, cars, fireworks, Halloween costumes, recycling bins, and more. Let’s get those little paws walking in the right direction for a lifetime of fun by your side!

Puppy Play and Learn (4 weeks, suitable for puppies under 5 months old at class start)

Pups learn about appropriate interaction with other pups. Canine body language, learning when, why and how to interrupt play. Learning to read your dog so you and your dog can be successful interacting with other dogs for life!

Puppy Kindergarten Level 1 (6 weeks, suitable for puppies up to 5 months old at class start)

Let us help get you and your puppy started off on the right paw with our foundation Puppy Kindergarten course. It is a life skill for your young dog to learn and develop in a stimulating environment such as our training centre, as it will help create a more attentive and optimistic dog. Our puppy class will set you up for success in future training and everything you do with your dogs over the course of their lives.

Have you already completed your Level 1 class? We have spots available in upcoming Intermediate Manners classes (Level 2) and Scent Detection!

Intermediate Manners (6 weeks, prerequisite: Level 1 class)

This class combines our two most popular second-level classes to address the two largest concerns all of our clients have - Leash Skills and Recall! Each week, we will work on improving communication and focus with your dog, practice listening skills in increasingly distracting environments and play fun training games to build a great recall and excellent loose leash walking skills.

Wednesday March 2nd at 7:40pm

Thursday March 3rd at 6:30pm


Scent Detection Level 1 (4 weeks, recommended age: 6 months and older)

The sport of scent detection teaches your dog to find a specific target odor and then tell you where it is. All dogs are born knowing how to find a scent and follow it to its source which means that Scent Detection games can be played by any breed of dog! No previous training of any kind is needed to get involved in this sport and it is great for young and old dogs as well as dogs with disabilities.

Friday March 11th at 6:20pm

Friday April 8th at 6:30pm


Scent Detection Level 2 (4 weeks, prerequisite: Scent Detection Level 1)

This class is the second level of work for dogs that have some introductory experience with scent work training. Get sniffy with it!

Friday March 11th at 7:30pm

Friday April 8th at 7:40pm


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask - we are often quite busy teaching classes and private lessons during the day so email is the best way to reach us. Send a message to and we will reply as soon as we can!

We look forward to seeing you and your pup in class soon!
